Night and Day

A Big Book of Opposites

Julie Safirstein


List Price: 24.95*
* Individual store prices may vary.


As different as night and day, goes the old saying, and this elegant book takes readers through a series of opposites of all kinds, from large to small (and tiny), long and short, front and behind, above, below, open, closed, together and alone. Colorful pop-ups, lift-the-flaps, and cut-outs create an interactive reading experience that is both lively and instructive. This beautiful book will be a treasure on any child's bookshelf.
